Monosyllabic Pedantry

Sunday, May 14, 2006


We went to Rollerderby. It was a blast. As the flyer says, it was the Denim Demons vs the SakeTuyas. There was a creepy clown for an announcer.
There was also a tattood-mexican-wrestler-looking woman who was also providing commentary:

La Dangerosa carried a paddle in her boot for impromtu spankings, and was the Mistress of the Wheel of Punishment. If the girls committed an egregious enough foul, they were subjected to the Wheel's whims. No one committed anything that bad, though

The only downside is that they provide no booze. Note for next time: bring flask.

One of the things that struck us was the number of kids there. Not that there was anything really "adult" going on. The other thing that was cute was that all the little kids were very well behaved. Mrs Schwartz and I talked about how we wished we could show the scene to her parents: Parents with serious tattoos and punk rock clothes, who were taking a serious interest in their kids, and the kids being well behaved as a result.
We finally concluded that Mrs Schwartz would be great at Rollerderby, especially as a jammer. I'm going to keep working on her to do it.


  • Is that Mrs Schwartz with the clown and the dogs? She's kinda cute. Maybe mullets really do work.

  • Yes, but this is not her internet debut. She was first made famous as the "woman holding the beer" in Sarcastro's welcome photo.
